About Our Care

There are three main phases of chiropractic care in our office:

1. Initial Relief Care

Many patients come to our office with some type of ache or pain, so that’s where we start.   During this Initial Stage of Intensive care, we have several goals:

  • To uncover the underlying cause of the problem.
  • Get you feeling better as soon as possible.

2.  Stabilization Phase

It’s during this second phase of care that the body is still stabilizing itself and getting used to being in proper positioning.

This phase requires less frequent visits, but regularity is key to training all the soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments and discs) to adapt to the spinal correction.

If a spinal bone is used to being misaligned for months or years, it will take regularity for the surrounding supportive structures to re-align themselves.

If you stop care before the Stabilization Phase is complete, your spine will just go back to its old distorted position.

This is why this phase of care is so important.

3. Wellness Maintenance Care

This phase is the easiest and the longest phase.  This phase of care requires even less frequent visits, but once again, a certain level of regularity is key.

This phase is like wearing a retainer after you’ve had your braces off.  If any old patterns return or any new stress patterns appear, Wellness Maintenance Care prevents them from settling into the body.

Since stress (physical, chemical, emotional, mental) causes spinal stresses, as long as you’re alive you need to be checked on a regular basis.
